I have been tasked with changing out an older Flex Drive servo drive to a more modern Micro Flex drive in a machine that has an Omron CQM1H-CPU51 PLC. I'm having a few issues but hope that i can gain some clarity around at least one of the hurdles Im facing from here.
Biggest issue for me at this moment is My work hasn't yet purchased a programming lead for this PLC (or even the bits required to make one myself) but i have a feeling the control for the Servo is done via motion control in the PLC. Question here is, if changing from one servo drive to another type, will the motion control code need to be updated to work with the new servo drive? I have very limited experience with motion control itself at this stage so I'm a bit lost when it comes to these sort of details.
